  Best New Overland Vehicles: Factory-Backed Off-Roaders Ready for the Trail For many overlanders and off-roaders, modifying their SUV or truck is half the fun—I know this full well, as I’ve watched my wife turn her Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid into a light-duty overland expedition rig. But modifying any vehicle (not to mention assuming you know better than a team of highly skilled automotive engineers) can be risky, especially if you plan on heading off the beaten path. © Motor Trend Staff 2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon 2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro 2019 Chevrolet Colorado V6 ZR2 5 At worst, a poorly chosen part could break, leaving you stranded a long hike from the nearest pavement.

The Toyota Land Cruiser is getting a bit long in the tooth, with the current model tracing its roots back to 2007. Despite a number of updates, it is fundamentally the same SUV that was truly new 13 years ago. Though ancient in car years, the Land Cruiser can be made to feel fresh again, and a company called Carat has found a way to do just that. Most surprisingly, Carat's creation isn't some rugged, no-holds-barred off road build celebrating the Landie's renowned capability—it's actually a limousine conversion.

Carat extends the Land Cruiser's wheelbase by nearly 20 inches, turning the once rugged, high-riding SUV into a (perhaps slightly less) go-anywhere, do-anything conveyance. It's one of the more unique Land Cruiser builds we've ever seen, but Carat didn't stop at just making the Toyota longer. The outfit adds a "high level of ballistic protection," and we assume that means it'll easily fend off small- to medium-caliber bullets should you find yourself in a hail of gunfire and wishing your Land Cruiser presented a slightly smaller target.

Here, the Koreans rely on the i30 model family. The compact sedan is very popular in other world markets. In the United States, the seventh generation of the Elantra will be revealed in a Hollywood event via live stream on March 17.

Given how a regular Land Cruiser's back seat wouldn't make for much of a limo-like experience, especially if you're looking for distractions from incoming gunfire, Carat makes sure to make the big off-roader more comfy. Putting its limousine's extra length to excellent use, the firm turns the aft half of the Toyota into a Maybach-rivaling luxury lounge.  The interior has been totally redone with wood, suede, and leather covering just about every surface. The only leftover Toyota bits we can see are the door grab handles and lock mechanisms, and maybe the air vents embedded in the wood veneers facing the rear seats. 

Oh, and about those rear perches: The fully adjustable seats look like recliners, and in between them is a center armrest that has room for champagne and whiskey should you and your guest find yourselves needing to take the edge off from all that gunfire you'll be driven through.

Carat also added a "parade roof" for those brave enough to poke their heads out of the top of this thing—is that gunfire still going on?—and upgraded the suspension and the brakes to help the Land Cruiser maintain its 4x4 skills in spite of its less-favorable breakover angle due to the lengthened wheelbase. We think it's delightfully weird that the Land Cruiser, which is kinda-sorta a luxury vehicle here in the U.S. but largely a mainstream workhorse elsewhere, has been converted into a Lexus-like limo. (Ignore, for the moment, the not-limo, similarly fancy Lexus LX, the LC's leather-lined cousin.) While we prefer to do our own off-roading, surely this Carat piece will cater to those who'd like someone else to do the driving—and if those folks have gun-toting enemies, all the better, right?
